Do you enjoy kidnapping your rivals’ team mascots or toilet-papering their frat houses? If so, you might find your ideal career at College Hunks Hauling Junk. The company hires college students and recent grads to pick up the junk and take it away. The founder, Nick Friedman, had a goal of capturing that friendly rivalry so often associated with college life and turning it into profits. When the company launched in 2005, the haulers from Virginia found their truck had been lathered in shaving cream and draped with a University of Maryland flag. The Virginia haulers retaliated, and soon after, dead fish were found on the seats of Maryland’s truck. Friedman decided to use this energy as an incentive instead of condemning the unorthodox behavior. “We wanted to harness that competitive, prankster enthusiasm and channel it for good,” he said.
Friedman made a bold move and decided that instead of tracking typical key performance indicators such as revenue, average job size, and customer loyalty, he would set up his dashboard to track the volume of junk collected and the amount donated or recycled. The winning team gains such things as bragging rights and banners, modest monetary prizes, and the right to eat first at the annual company meeting. Most employees check the dashboard daily to view their own and rivals’ latest standings.
